The Division of Disease Control encompasses many programs. Those programs include:
o       Communicable Disease investigation and reporting
o       Tuberculosis Care programs for the City of Rockford and County of Winnebago
o       Sexual Health Clinic

Through a collaborative effort, this Division endeavors to protect Winnebago County residents and visitors from disease outbreaks. This is accomplished through surveillance initiatives, disease investigations and emergency preparedness activities. The investigations respond to confirmed and suspected cases of infectious diseases and conditions reported by physician offices, hospitals and laboratories. The team approach assures data is collected and analysis compliments the investigative process.

Disease reporting is an essential component in keeping our community health. Reports can be completed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling (815) 720-4050. Disease reports may also be faxed to our confidential fax line
